On Sept. 13, Nature Discovery Park in Aliante, a North Las Vegas master-planned community, served as the venue for the first Annual Family Fun Day/Fundraising Picnic for Medtyme Emergency Medical Relief Association. Visitors spent the day enjoying refreshments and entertainment, while becoming familiarized with the nonprofit organization’s devotion to supporting individuals who are in need of medical assistance, but do not have the necessary health care insurance or resources.
“We are very pleased with the turnout we had, which enabled us to let more people in need know that help is here,” said Rosalind Jamerson-Cobb, founding director of MEMRA and a resident of Aliante. “Based on the level of interest and enthusiasm this event generated, we expect our cause to begin reaching more people in the community than ever. We have also been pleased with the support we have already received from the public — both monetary and through the donation of medical equipment such as hospital beds and other greatly needed items.”
MEMRA medical emergency relief assistance provides people with support, resources and referrals. Monetary assistance and/or relief from MEMRA are awarded in the form of emergency/financial aid. MEMRA services are provided to individuals regardless of diagnosis, age, gender, religion, race or creed. The organization was organized exclusively for charitable, medical emergency relief or assisting purposes within the meaning of a 501(c)-3 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
